People First of Stephens County’s annual Fire Safety Festival will give 24 families free carbon monoxide detectors
People First of Stephens County’s annual Fire Safety Festival is coming up this weekend.
The festival will run from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., Saturday, October 12 at Emory Johnson Park in Toccoa.
According to Jeraldine Hayes, with People First of Stephens County, this year’s festival will be a little different.
“People First of Stephens County, which is an advocacy group for individuals with disabilities, will be hosting their annual Fire Safety Festival October 12, from 9 to 2 p.m.,” Hayes said. “This year we’ll be doing things a little bit differently, we’ll be giving everything away for free. And we’re also going to have DJ Ron Prather doing the music. We’re going to have free food, games, prizes, and the most exciting thing is we’re going to have a great dance contest. So come and enjoy the activities on October 12, at Emory Johnson Park from 9 to 2 p.m.”
The annual event is an opportunity for the community to come together to learn about fire safety from real firefighters.
Both Stephens County and Habersham County Fire Departments will be on scene to provide valuable information.
Hayes says the first 24 families who participate in the fire safety training will receive a free smoke and carbon monoxide detector.
“We’re actually giving away free smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for the first 24 families that go through the training. Stephens County and Habersham County Fire Departments will conduct very informative trainings. So we hope the community will come out and take advantage of this valuable training,” she said.
Again, the Annual Fire Safety Festival is slated for Saturday, October 12 at Emory Johnson Park in Toccoa.
